As you already have noticed, we live with some humans. I think almost every Guinea Pig in the world lives close to a human… And this is not because we can’t live without them, but the other way around, no matter what they actually say. So you may ask yourself what you should do with the humans around you. I’ll share some of my experience with you.
First of all, it is a pleasure to watch them fooling around us. They feel the need to talk with us in a funny way. More, whenever we start wheeking they think we are awesomely cute and they are able to spend minutes looking at us. I even saw the human female watching us while sleeping and I also have the proof – lots and lots of pictures. Awkward! It’s like having a TV with free Human Planet…
Then, they are always useful when it comes to food. I could definitely go by myself to the supermarket and get as many vegetables as I could eat and not paying a thing. (I’m not talking about stealing, but I’m so cute I’m positive no one will ever ask me to pay for my food.) But it’s easier to stay home, sleep, and wait for the food to come to you. Especially when I decide upon the menu. And it is always funny to imagine how the other humans are looking at your human in the metro because he/she has some celery getting out of the backpack.
Let’s not forget about our need of having a maid. I’m too busy thinking to have enough time to clean my room. So, I have two humans dealing with this. The human male is in charge of buying and bringing home huge bags of 20 kilos of sawdust and the human female needs to refresh our habitat every evening.
Also, if we wouldn’t have humans around, there won’t be any couches or beds with pillows and blankets to pee and poo on. It is amazing how funny it is to run around, find a place in the blanket and do your “job” there. Even more amazing is the fact that we are allowed to do it, but other humans not.
So, my dear furry friend, control well your human(s) and don’t forget: you can live without them for sure, but life is funnier and easier with them around. 😀
